‘Scream’ Has Little Innovation; And That’s The Point – Screenhub Entertainment

Whenever trends in horror have popped up, Scream has been there to offer commentary. The fifth film in the franchise, also titled Scream, doesn’t bring much new to the table, banking more on nostalgia for the trendsetting original, but that’s kind of what the whole movie is about. After her sister is attacked, Sam Carpenter (Melissa Barrera) returns to her hometown of Woodsboro California, where … Continue reading ‘Scream’ Has Little Innovation; And That’s The Point – Screenhub Entertainment

Guilty Pleasure: The ‘Underworld’ Series Has A Surprising Understanding of History and Mythology – ScreenHub Entertainment

We’re in the cold, desolate month of January, where most movie studios dump their unwanted movies to the big screen. When a film is projected to get poor reviews and potentially cost the studio money, they simply sacrifice it to the altar of January. This may be what Screen Gems thought was in store for their vampire versus werewolf franchise, which has been a January … Continue reading Guilty Pleasure: The ‘Underworld’ Series Has A Surprising Understanding of History and Mythology – ScreenHub Entertainment

The Time Is Right To Adapt ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ To The Big Screen – ScreenHub Entertainment

As HBO Max and its Canadian brother, Crave, kindly reminded us prior to the new year, 2021 marked the 20-year anniversary of the beginning of the Harry Potter franchise in cinema. It was in November 2001 that we were first introduced to Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as our official Harry, Ron and Hermione; which feels like centuries ago. ‘Blimey’ as Ron would … Continue reading The Time Is Right To Adapt ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ To The Big Screen – ScreenHub Entertainment

Home Alone’s Themes & How Home Alone 2 Missed Them – ScreenHub Entertainment

As I type this opening sentence, I can’t help but hear the collective groan of my readership when talking about the ‘themes’ of Home Alone. What could possibly be thoughtful about a 90s family comedy? The thing about big hits is often, sometimes unintentionally, they explore ideas that resonate with viewers in a way that makes the film last. Home Alone is such a film, … Continue reading Home Alone’s Themes & How Home Alone 2 Missed Them – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘Halloween Kills’ Adds a Brief Yet Crucial Few Minutes – ScreenHub Entertainment

There has been much hype about the streaming release of the extended cut of Halloween Kills. Kills proved perhaps to be the most polarizing film in the entire series, and many wondered if the added material would do anything to improve it. Those expecting a drastically different experience like say, the extended cuts of Terminator 2 or Avatar will be disappointed. What we get is … Continue reading ‘Halloween Kills’ Adds a Brief Yet Crucial Few Minutes – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘The French Dispatch’ Spoiler-Free Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

Let me start by saying I’m a big fan of Wes Anderson. Going to the red carpet and premiere of 2018’s Isle of Dogs was probably one of the top moments of that year for me. The only film of Anderson’s I have yet to see is The Life Aquatic but I’ve loved all of those that I have seen. The French Dispatch, though full … Continue reading ‘The French Dispatch’ Spoiler-Free Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

No Maniac, No Problem: Why ‘Halloween III’ Is Great – ScreenHub Entertainment

1982 saw the release of one of the most reviled films of its time, the highly anticipated third entry in John Carpenter’s Halloween series. Halloween III: Season of the Witch had nothing to do with series’ villain, Michael Myers, and left audiences feeling betrayed and tricked. Is Halloween III really a bad movie, or could it have been a new beginning for a series that … Continue reading No Maniac, No Problem: Why ‘Halloween III’ Is Great – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘Dune’ Spoiler-Free Movie Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

Denis Villeneuve has been consistently knocking it out of the park with his whole career. He made his big budget debut with the tense crime drama Prisoners and moved on to release Enemy in the same year. These were closely followed by Sicario and Arrival (his first big science fiction success). Blade Runner 2049 was a big test because the preexisting fanbase for Blade Runner … Continue reading ‘Dune’ Spoiler-Free Movie Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

Sweet & Sour Nightmares: Race and Exploitation in the Original ‘Candyman’

Horror stories began as fables meant to warn us of life’s dangers, or a means to confront that which scares us most. As a modern fable, 1992’s Candyman is among the most effective. What at first seems to be a straightforward supernatural slasher film instead manages to weave its thrills with a powerful dose of social commentary dealing with themes of poverty, classism and racism … Continue reading Sweet & Sour Nightmares: Race and Exploitation in the Original ‘Candyman’
